A very rare bottle of "Crusted port" a blend of more than one vintage. The 1962 Noval (bottled 1965) is actually a blend of 1/3 Nacional 1962 and 2/3 Noval 1963. Normal convention is to label the bottle with the bottling date.
"Bottled in the UK by Hedges & Butler. Described by Hedges & Butler as "2/3rds of the blend is the regular Noval 1963 and 1/3rd is the Noval Nacional 1962; bottled in 1965".
Deep rose colour, light brown rim. Lightly spicy on the attractive nose, full of sweet redcurrants. Silky texture, spicy midpalate then lots of dried red fruit. Lovely long and lingering finish. Really enjoyable and very tasty. 93/100. (Port Forum tasting - Note by AHB)"
